Marta has been called the best female footballer of all time
Marta is a 32-year-old Brazilian forward who currently plays for Orlando Pride.
She holds the record for the most goals scored at FIFA Women's World Cup tournaments – 15.

She was awarded the FIFA World Player of the Year five consecutive times between 2006 and 2010 and won two silver medals at the Olympics.
At the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero, she was one of eight to carry the Olympic Flag.
Marta was announced as the winner of the 2018 award in October.
She became the first player to win the award six times having won it five years in a row between 2006 and 2010.
Speaking as she picked up the trophy, she said: "This means so much, but it is not only about Marta, it is about my team-mates and women's football.
"Most importantly, it is good to see women's soccer grow each year. If I keep doing well and that can help off the field too, then I am happy."
2007 was the closest Marta has come to lifting the World Cup trophy.
Brazil made it through to the final, but were beaten 2-0 by Germany at the Hongkou Football Stadium, Shanghai.
On October 6, 2018 England played Brazil in an international friendly at Meadow Lane.
Marta, who is the captain for Brazil, had been confirmed in the Brazil squad for the game and made the starting XI.
